Miss Tick Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 My dc are going to finish Saxon 3 at the end of this summer and I need some help deciding what to do next. Both do fine in math, although they don't strike me as "mathy". We school through the summer and since we don't take breaks we've skipped most of the review lessons at the beginning of each book (and K was almost all review :tongue_smilie: so we started 1). This year we've been doing math 4 days and doing an alternative math day on the other one - SM CWP 1, logic, games, etc. Rather than just keep plugging on forward, I'm thinking it would be a good time to circle back and let the math facts really get cemented (they know them, but I suspect they are often re-calculating them), and perhaps look at some of the topics from a different perspective. They will be 7 shortly, so I feel like we have some flexibility in our schedule. What do you think about this plan? What would you suggest for a curriculum/level to step to (and why)? One reason I'm asking now is that I see HSBC has Math Mammoth on sale and I thought the dark blue books might be an option for us. Beast Academy sounds interesting also, but, of course, I haven't actually seen the material. Thanks for any thoughts you have. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
